Found February 05, 2012 on Pro Football Talk:
Saturday was a tough day for those who just missed out on election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Things don’t figure to get much easier for Bill Parcells, Cris Carter, Charles Haley, Andre Reed and the other finalists who couldn’t garner enough support to join those elected to the Hall. The ballot will…

Parcells Hall snub just ridiculous

I once heard the Pro Football Hall of Fame described as an assemblage of the people you could not write the history of the NFL without. So, I am at somewhat of a loss on how to proceed with my gawking disbelief regarding legendary coach Bill Parcells' exclusion. How do you argue with somebody who thinks you can write the history of the league without one of the greatest motivators...

Curtis Martin wants Bill Parcells to present him for induction

Bill Parcells fell short of election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, but it looks like he still might find his way to the induction ceremonies in Canton this summer. Curtis Martin was elected and the running back, who played for Parcells in New England and with the Jets, hinted that he…

Cris Carter’s colleagues take up his Hall of Fame case

All 11 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists who were voted down on Saturday have their supporters, but with hundreds of ESPN employees here in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl, it’s been hard to go anywhere without hearing from one of Cris Carter’s colleagues pressing the case that Carter got robbed. That’s been true in…

Carter, Doleman waiting for call to the Hall

Former Vikings Cris Carter and Chris Doleman are hoping to hear their names called for the Hall of Fame Saturday after being finalists before, only to be disappointed after the vote.

Bill Parcells, 3 WRs Not Among HOF inductees

Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Bill Parcells, who won two Super Bowls as head coach of the New York Giants, and all three wide receivers up for consideration failed to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. Curtis Martin, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf and senior nominee Jack Butler were all elected by the selection committee. Wide receivers...

Curtis: Parcells Hall of a guy

INDIANAPOLIS — There is no greater honor in football than being elected to the Hall of Fame. There would be no greater moment for Bill Parcells and Curtis Martin than to go in together.

My favorite Andre Reed play

Here we are again. I think we have gone through like 4 or 5 of these Saturdays by now. Will Andre Reed finally get in? I really don't know if he's going to get in and neither do you. These HOF voters can be a little odd (See: Jason Whitlock on William Roaf and Peter King). If Reed gets in, he will more than likely be the last reminder from the Bills 90's teams to...

NFL rewind: New York Giants win Super Bowl XXV

One of the most competitive Super Bowl’s in history was played January 27th, 1991 featuring the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills. It continues to be the only Super Bowl decided by one point and was the first Super Bowl where neither team would record a turn over. Whitney Houston’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” went down in history as Super Bowl XXV brought American’s...

Curtis Martin elected to NFL Hall of Fame; Parcells not

By Mike McDermottCurtis Martin, whose career began with three consecutive 1,000-plus yard seasons in New England, has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Martin, who spent the final eight years of his 11-year career with the rival New York Jets, is the NFL's fourth leading all-time rusher, with 14,101 yards. Martin's former coach, Bill Parcells, who is a defining...

What the Hall? Parcells should be immortalized now, not later

INDIANAPOLIS — There often is something fishy about these Hall of Fame votes, especially when a Tuna is cast aside. No disrespect intended, but Bill Parcells was jobbed last night. You are what your record says you are, and Parcells’ record says emphatically he is a Hall of Famer. He will...

King: HOF WR issue not changing

SI.com NFL writer Peter King, who is one of 44 members on the Hall of Fame Selectors Committee, and voted for the 2012 Hall of Fame class, which excluded Bills Wall of Famer Andre Reed, has an interesting perspective on the logjam at wide receiver with Reed, Cris Carter and Tim Brown. In his Monday Morning QB column, King offers the following on the state of the wide receiver debate...
